Woot! Figured why not go for it and hit $2,500! (My nerdy math justification of 25 years old x a century = 2,500)!
Thanks to your amazing support so far, I've reached $500 within 12 hours! Let's keep the momentum going and hit $1,000!
Hola Lovely Peoples!
As many of you know, I'm turning the big 2-5 on Nov 3. For my birthday this year, I'm asking my friends and family to help me raise $500 for Corazon de Vida for the Dec. 1 annual trip. I have been volunteering and more recently co-leading trips with this organization to Tijuana orphanages for the last 2 years. I have been able to help support and mentor these children and even see some go off to attend high school and college! Corazon de Vida is a great organization that supports 14 orphanages and over 800 orphans in Baja California with the goal of ending the cycle of child homelessness.
Did you know that only $2 is needed to help feed and provide a child with basic necessities for a day? As the Starbucks example is waayyy overused and not my thing, think about it this way: That's about half of a Sprinkles cupcake, 2 orders of double meat on a Subway sandwich, a small drink & bag of chips / fries, or less than 1 small Pinkberry with no toppings. Put another way: Cabo Cantina's 2 for 1 happy hour special of 36oz Margaritas will support 8 children!
Please help support me and make my Birthday Wish come true as I turn a quarter of a century old! Together we can make a huge difference. If you are unable to donate, I would really appreciate if you could share this page with your friends and family or join me on my trip. Please see below for more information.
BRINGING HOPE FOR THE ORPHANAGES OF BAJA
Corazon de Vida Foundation provides assistance to over 800 kids living in 14 Baja orphanages. The children are asking for your help to put nutritious food and clean drinking water on their tables, help them pay for propane and electricity, provide medical, dental, education needs, and improve their quality of life.
Can you help the children?
The 2012 Holiday Pledge Campaign will end on December 31 so please contribute even a small amount to help. This has been an incredibly difficult year for the children and they need us today.
